Small Size Shipping / Storage Container Dimensions

They are also ideal for small conversion jobs - when you have a specific function in mind - such as creating a generator store.

Slightly larger than the 6ft units these 8ft long containers provide wind and water tight storage - ideal for on site storage at the bottom of your garden or at your workplace. At just over 7ft tall these units also provide slightly more headroom which does make loading the contents into your container more comfortable. These units could offer an ideal solution for storing your patio furniture, BBQ and lawn mower! A steel container also provides a significantly longer term storage option when compared to your average garden shed.

All sizes, dimensions & weights are correct at time of post but can occasionally differ slightly - if you are unsure about anything please contact us.

Custom Length Fabricated Shipping Containers

It is also possible to create smaller length shipping/storage containers by modifying larger containers, longer units such as standard 20ft or 40ft shipping containers can be cut down to the desired length, the end panel or double door panel can then be re-fitted to complete the unit at the desired length. Using this process it is possible to create structurally sound containers at any length from 40ft down to 6ft in length. If you need a specific size container for a specific storage purpose or for a conversion project that you're working on get in touch using the form below. 

Small Shipping Container Construction

The containers are of new manufacture are built using high quality corrugated steel. Double doors at one end. The flooring is formed from 20mm hardwood. Generally green or blue externally.

These containers are ideal for small areas and tight corners - they are obviously much smaller than a standard 20ft shipping container.

We always have extensive stocks of these containers throughout the UK and are ready for immediate delivery.

Small Container Security

Your container can be provided with a lock box (steel box welded on the double doors to enclose a padlock thus making is less tamper proof), a high-security padlock, painting and many other extras are also available if required.

Due to the base construction material (corrugated steel), these units offer a significant security improvement over a standard (wood) garden shed. 

Small Container Delivery

Unless otherwise specified, we will typically deliver your shipping container on a HIAB assisted vehicle (we will lift the container to the ground where you need it), click here for more information on our delivery process. Please be sure to provide us with your delivery post code on the enquiry form.

As these containers are smaller than standard 20ft or 40ft shipping containers we often deliver - we may opt to deliver them to you on a flatbed and locate the container using a forklift. If you have any specific requirements for locating your container on site - such as restricted access, or you are wanting to locate the container a significant distance from where the truck/trailer can access, please ensure you make us aware of this during the enquiry.

Please contact us on the enquiry form below and we will send a quotation based on all available options for comparison.
